[Let's make some] Avocado Cocoa Ice Cream!

Well hello! Today's dessert isn't a 100% healthy alternative to the ice cream that you can buy in stores and it's also not vegan, cause I did put some cream in it. But it still is way healthier than the ordinary one. Why? Because the only sugar in it comes from dates and of course I haven't put any preservatives or food colorants (that practically every ice cream bought in stores is full of) in it.

As you might have already noticed, I love simple recipes. This one is no exception.

You will need:

1 avocado
16 dates
2 tsp 100% unsweetened cocoa powder
100 mL cream
2 tsp extra-virgin coconut cream

The ingredients.

This thingy is just such a treat. It makes every recipe 100% better and it reduces the amount of sugar (e.g. dates) that you have to put into your mixture.

Cut the avocado.

And mix mix mix.

Now this looks really attractive and appetizing, right? [sarcasm]

So after you've mixed all the ingredients, just put them in little containers (or all together, that works as well) and freeze for at least a couple of hours.

For today's dessert, I put one out of the containers, turned it upside down and topped it with some coconut flakes to make it somehwat more attractive.

Final presentation.

And that's it. Hope you try it out. But if you're more into vegan desserts, I will be making a no-cream alternative to this recipe soon, so stay tuned!
